CommissionsThe Making of Americans: An opera by Jay Scheib and Anthony Gatto based on the novel by Gertrude Stein

Jay Scheib/Anthony Gatto

Gertrude Stein’s groundbreaking “cubist” novel, The Making of Americans, is the launching pad for this innovative, media-rich chamber opera. Boston-based experimental theater director Jay Scheib, Brooklyn-based composer Anthony Gatto, local new-music stalwarts Zeitgeist, and upstart New York string quartet JACK reimagine Stein’s groundbreaking history of all humanity. This ambitious collaboration unfolds in front of sets and machines designed by Minneapolis-based artist Chris Larson.
